How to Respond to EEOC Discrimination Charges in 2022
An employee has rights to sue your organization, if there occurs violations to anti-discrimination laws. Before that, the employee has to file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or a similar state agency, which then reaches out to the employer of the charge. If the employers fail to present a strong "position statement," they are likely to fail in defending themselves against the suit.
This position statement is an opportunity for the employers to provide their stance on the subject. This is where the employers may claim the allegations pressed against them are false. It is basically the first impression the employer makes with the EEOC which can determine the future of the lawsuit.
So it is of utmost importance to gain as much knowledge as you can gain in this regard as possible, so if such a situation arises, you are fully prepared.
In Fiscal Year 2021, The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) received 67,448 discrimination cases. Think about it, we have 200 workdays a year – so this equates to over 337 per day or over 42 every hour. Sheer numbers indicate that it’s just a matter of time before a discrimination charge crosses your desk. Get the information you need NOW to be prepared.
The fact is discrimination charges are now just one of the risks of doing business. Proper preparation is the key to winning charges of discrimination, but properly responding to a Charge of Discrimination is never fun. Join us on Clatid this September to learn about the discrimination charges that non-compliance is likely to bring.
